The Best Cannabis Strains for Introverts

Introverts

As personality types vary, so too do the cannabis strains that best suit them. It’s no surprise, then, that introverts and extroverts may enjoy different types of cannabis, for different reasons.

An introvert tends to find social activities and interpersonal interactions draining; they draw energy instead from solitary pursuits, frequently those that are creative in some way. It’s not that introverts are necessarily shy or quiet—often they’re as capable as an extrovert of participating in social events, they’re simply less eager to do so. If you can only handle group engagements for so long, or just love spending time on your own, the following cannabis strains may well be for you.

Pineapple Express

Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (15-19% THC on average)

Primary terpenes: Caryophyllene, limonene, myrcene

Pineapple Express is equal parts productive and creative, making it the ideal accompaniment to an afternoon of drawing, gardening, photography, or poetry. Bonus: You don’t have to be an introvert to love something that smokes like a bowl of fresh tropical fruit.

Strawberry Banana

Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (17-23% THC on average)

Primary terpenes: Limonene, myrcene, caryophyllene

Happy and peaceful Strawberry Banana is a perfect marriage of creative mental stimulation and heightened sensory awareness. It’s a fruity, floral strain that emits delectable swirls of super-sweet smoke.

Big Smooth

Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (17-22% THC on average)

Primary terpenes: Pinene, myrcene, caryophyllene

If your introversion does happen to manifest as shyness, allow Big Smooth to be your social sidekick. Its effects emerge as a smooth-talking combination of mild sedation, relaxation, and euphoria, meaning it’s capable of keeping you smiling through any social encounter and will taper off into a pleasantly uplifting buzz once you’ve managed to extricate yourself from the engagement.

Master Kush

Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (15-19% THC on average)

Primary terpenes: Limonene, caryophyllene, myrcene

The best thing about Master Kush is how it relaxes the body without numbing the mind. Instead, it heightens sensory perception, making this strain ideal to enjoy right before you get started on your current personal project. Its heirloom cannabis aroma and flavor also make this a tasty strain to smoke, vape, or dab at any time.

CBD Critical Mass 

Cannabinoid profile: CBD/THC balanced (5-7% THC and 8-10% CBD on average)

Primary terpenes: Myrcene, pinene, caryophyllene

For some, the wrong strains can heighten social anxiety, and introverted consumers will probably want to be more wary of this effect. That’s where this strain’s CBD content comes in; CBD Critical Mass balances THC’s potential for paranoia in a 1:1 ratio that still allows for mild, mellow intoxication. If you’re stopping by a social gathering on your way home from work, and want to get a little uplifted first, try a few hits of CBD Critical Mass—no one will be any the wiser.

Blueberry Cookies

Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (13-17% THC on average)

Primary terpenes: Myrcene, pinene, caryophyllene

Heady and creative Blueberry Cookies is beloved for bringing together the best of its parent strains, Blueberry Tahoe and Thin Mint GSC. It’s jam-packed with flavors that are perfect for closing your eyes and savoring solo: think of a sweet, earthy bowl of berries. It brings a bit of sedation without overwhelming the consumer, making it perfect for relaxing on your own time right around 4:20.

Quantum Kush

Cannabinoid profile: THC-dominant (16-21% THC on average)

Primary terpenes: Limonene, caryophyllene, myrcene

A high-THC strain that tempers euphoric effects with relaxation, Quantum Kush is a perfect pick-me-up when the pressures of daily life start to get you down. Its uniquely herbaceous aromatics and earthy flavor profile are also something to look forward to over the course of a long day.
